11:13 pm
gold sweet calls and the san friscan restaurant. constructing a new waterfront concrete promenade from powell street to the franciscan restaurant. our contractor there is vortex marine. they have been working rather diligently including saturdays most of the last month and will continue to work saturdays through thanksgiving with the goal of completing the project to substantial completion by thanksgiving. so far, 92 two-foot wide diameter concrete piles each of which are 100 feet in length, support the new wharf deck and that deck will go along the promenade there and come around behind the franciscan restaurant replacing old deck that has been condemned sometime ago. in addition and very importantly, over 500 feet of the timber seawall has been replaced with reinforced concrete wall and rock armor stone. this is a very important
11:14 pm
project for that area of the waterfront. on october 4th, friday, october 4th, the contractor began laying the cement pre-cast segment. so, part of the concrete will be poured in place and part of that concrete will be pre-cast and delivered. and, so, three of the pre-cast segments were delivered via barge and set into place saturday, october 13th. and the remaining 11 segments have been cast and are in transit to the job site for placement in the next two weeks. this past week at 1:00 a.m., 42 cement trucks arrived to pour the remaining concrete of the area that's cast in place. and, so, that was really rather cool. they came out 1:00 a.m. and were finished by sunrise. so, it was a very busy night, if you will. they poured 9,000 square feet of 15-inch thick concrete deck, about 380 cubic yards. that represents about 40% of the overall deck material. so, the remainder will be cast
11:15 pm
-- pre-cast, which will be delivered by barge. the next few weeks we'll see the remainder of the pre-cast deck panels placed p. topping slab placed, railing placed, lighting, and land side paving. so, this project is moving along with an expected opening date and time for thanksgiving on the opening of the crab season. so, that will be really perfect for all of us. i just want to take a few moments to thank all of our partners in the fisherman's wharf community for their patience with the project and the department of public works for their assistance in project management and, of course, members of the port staff ranging from port engineering to port real estate, port maintenance, pretty much everybody has been involved in some fashion. that's a very exciting milestone for us. a second one is right here next door and i hope if you didn't get a chance to see it on your way in you'll get a chance to see it on your way out. on saturday half the pier disappeared. it's gone for the most part. it's 90% complete with no serious issues or concerns. there are a few isolated
11:16 pm
structures which you might be able to see one is up against the pier 1 building. a concrete structure. as well as some of the very, very old ferry floats out towards the back. the project will be substantially complete by the end of this month, which is the middle of next week already. and that is several months ahead of our obligation to complete it by march of 2013. and you may recall that this is an important aspect of our permit with respect to the americas cup and pier 27 cruise terminal project. the pier item was bid out under the fourth amendment to the turner's pier cruise terminal contract. the total project is $1.3 million with $1 million going to a local lbe construction contractor, which is the sacker company which is a subcontractor to power engineering. so, we're really very pleased about that, and this is the project that's been on the books for a very long time and my kudos to everyone involved, which is too many people to
11:17 pm
mention. thanks, very great view of the bay there. motorcycle parking will be restored by the end of the month, which is something that people are concerned about. and from this hopefully we'll be able to restore the seating area as well. lastly i wanted to report on the grateful americas conference that occurred may 11. pete daly traveled to port commission with willie adams. there was a record attendance of 12,500 participants and the portmanaged, manned i guess is a better word, an exhibit for the couple of days during the conference. metro ports which is our steve adore company, had a boost and we hosted a cocktail reception for our key suppliers. our customers, if you will. and we also joined by not only commissioner adams as a member
11:18 pm
of the iowu international secretary treasurer, but also by mike vigilante who is in the back rooting for the giants there. and also james plato who came from the local [speaker not understood], a new approach that we took, it was extraordinarily well received, and together the port and iow delegation met with many of our customers and one on one came home with some good results. and, so, if i can, i'd like to defer over to commissioner adams to see if there is anything he'd like to highlight or share your perspective on. >> thank you. first of all, our going to houston is very historical. by the fact in the past only the port would go. but this time the port went and the iow, and i tell you, the customers it was a different approach. we were there working together [inaudible]. and the secretary treasurer, i'm also on the port
11:19 pm
commission. and we met with different customers. in fact, our biggest customer that goes into pier 80, they're building 10 new ships at $50 million a ship. and they have tried to corner the market. what they're saying is we want to bring double the amount of cargo going into pier 80. we need a good reliable work force. the port and iow have a good working relationship. we have the best working class workers coming from the iow to get the ships in and out, safe and productive. but also to, we said we want to partnership with you. we need to get together every three months. we need to meet. we want to bring more cargo to the port of san francisco, it's a maritime port. we realize that. and i just want to say a special thank you to peter daly and jim malony, they worked very hard, they were very professional. but as i said, when we sat down across the table and had breakfast, the guy was just like, wow, i'm just relieved to
11:20 pm
know that labor, port are working together and we're looking into the future. we want to go out together. and one of my commitments as a commissioner is to go on these trips and to take labor and go with the port. and we want to bring more working class jobs, what the community really needs is jobs. they're not doing a good job in d.c. getting jobs. we want to do it here in the port of san francisco. and i want to thank the support of my commissioners here, president doreen, kim, and leslie, because we're committed. in the future i would just like to say before i'd like to have mike come up and say a word, i think we need more presentations on maritime and our clients. i think it's important. i think we need to be abreast. and we know this is a port with a lot of diversity in it from stadiums to maritime, to exploratorium. we all can coexist.
11:21 pm
madam president, i'd like to have mike come up and maybe jim wants to come up. i appreciate their efforts and hard work and professionalism [speaker not understood]. >> hello. thank you, madam president and commission. i appreciate the time. and willie, all the rest of the staff. i want to tell you, it was quite interesting for me. houston, texas is another world. california was -- [laughter] >> that was humidity, right, getting off the plane for sure. we were well received. and, again, i'd like to comment on the port, jim and peter and willie, we worked as a team in the sense our common goal is to bring work to the port of san
11:22 pm
francisco, develop the brake, boat and bulk facilities that we have and that are still vital maritime docks that we could enhance. speaking to the shippers, they received us in a way that was quite interesting to me because, excuse me, they were surprised, quite surprised. and a lot of the vendors that were in the exhibit were quite surprised that labor was there, especially iowu labor. we're going to make it a point of continuing our proactiveness in encouraging work to this port and to the bay area because it's quite important for the middle class of this country to enhance it. i want to say, though, it was interesting in this social venue that was -- took place, some of the exchanges. some of the best deals or the
11:23 pm
best ways to communicate are at these because it breaks down -- it breaks it down for these guys instead of being in the business atmosphere, there was a social atmosphere and they got to know us a little bit. and that's real important to put a face behind the organization or faces, and it was key. it was quite an experience and we're going to be doing it into the future in 2013. so, thank you and i appreciate the time. >> jim? >> commissioners, thank you for, first of all, for supporting setting commissioner adams and mike and james to houston to support us at the brake boat conference. i think one thing mike said is really key. i think business these days, business continues to be all about relationships and developing those key personal
11:24 pm
relationships and having an opportunity to sit across the table one on one and talk with -- these are the issues we have, these are the -- this is what i'd like you to address, allow us to want to do business with the port of san francisco. and i think we had an opportunity to talk with saga force carriers, bbc chartering, rick mers line and other carriers they'd like to call here and talk about these are the issues that we have. labor is an extremely important part of the conversation. i think its was very powerful you september commissioner adams have iowu represented and port commission represented at the conference. and i look forward to doing -- having future opportunities to work together with all of us and partner to work together to get business for the port. so, thank you. and again, thank you for your support. >> thank you. >> [inaudible]. >> go ahead [inaudible].
11:25 pm
>> in conclusion, i was just going to say thank you very much, commissioner adams and mike and jim, for your time and your effort in doing this with us and your pragmatism. it paid off handsomely. madam president, that concludes my report. >> i think there is a groundbreaking at the park. i was wondering if we can share those details with the president. >> i will do my best. you can nod or shake her head. we are hoping to have a public groundbreaking of the new area at the park, acre and a quarter that was added, reported on a couple meetings ago. this next thursday, next week, november 1st at 10:30 a.m. at the site to celebrate the opening of that important project. and, of course, that is going to be open to the public and i believe invitations will be going out. we just got confirmation today. >> so it is confirmed.
11:26 pm
>> yes, it is confirmed. >> madam chair, i just want to say [inaudible] when i said in the future i would like more presentations on our maritime clients, i thought it would be helpful [inaudible]. i just wanted to make sure. thank you. >> okay, thank you. we do have item 7b, which is an informational presentation. >> do you want to do public comment -- >> sorry, public comment on the executive director's report. thought we had some already. is there any more? >> [inaudible]. >> one thing you may not have included in the report is one of our largest tenants had a big victory -- [laughter] >> so, congratulations to the giants on making it to the world series. glad to have them as a tenant. (applause) >> and to that end, we are working tirelessly to make the next week a great success in every way.
11:27 pm
so, that effort started interestingly enough. >> to, that do want to thank our staff and dpt and others for working well with the giants, the division series games as well as the championship series games. and now we welcome the world series. i think all of us all working together, it really showed. and i think there are nothing but good things about moving the people through all the games. having talked to some of the folks at the giants, really praised executive director for stepping right up and making sure that everyone was on the same page as we [speaker not understood] get things set up. so, thank you. >> thank you for sharing that. i was very gratified by the wonderful beautiful shots of the city we received during all of the days, including our newly repainted port logo on pier 48. we're very proud of. so, more to come with the new
11:28 pm
